The Helgoland Rarities Committe (HAK) was founded in April 1997 to relieve the German Rarities Committee and to deal additionally with local rarities. In the meantime, the HAK is also responsible for the Exclusive Economic Zone in the German North Sea.
Species, which need to be submitted to the HAK before publication (e.g. in the Helgoland bird report), are marked in the Checklist.
Current HAK-members are:
Jochen Dierschke (chairman)
